One of the most important events for parents on school council is the association Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in conjunction with the ASCA Conference.
The 2018 Annual General Meeting was April 22 at the Delta Edmonton South.
Sunday's business meeting starts early, after breakfast, and continues until all resolutions proposed for policy are debated and voted upon, as well as election of the new governing Board.
Don't miss an opportunity to be involved, to be heard, and make a difference in public education.
Voting is your voice
Shape the future of Alberta's public education system with your input.
Resolutions passed into policy at the AGM form the association perspective as presented to Alberta government and organizations in education.
All school councils with current ASCA membership are eligible to send parent representatives to vote on behalf of the school council at the ASCA Annual General Meeting.
To influence change to issues at the provincial level, school councils/COSCs can send the issues to the ASCA office in order that they can be considered, discussed and debated by school council delegates province-wide at the ASCA Annual General Meeting (AGM).
